Neighbors say Carrington's body was found next to a front yard of a home on Gay Avenue. Police say he was dead by the time they got to him. The crash investigation shut down part of Gay Avenue until about 3 a.m. The medical examiner is trying to determine if Carrington had drugs or alcohol in his system.
